I was wondering what a saward was.

Pretty fail of a supply to rig an awards, stuff gets rigged all the time in the retail industry but its usually follows some sort of strategy and is well planned in good time.

Not really, but given that we all know by now that you can't edit the thread title after posting, I tend to wonder why people aren't just a tad more careful. Of course it's a pretty egregious wart in the board software that you can't edit a thread title but... ho hum.

Come on Diageo, who has been sacked? Nobody?

What an embarrassing shambles. I hope this follows them for years.

They certainly mounted a stout defence. They should find the executive responsible for this and de porter.
